EXCLUSIVE: Pelosi Clashes With Protesters Over Impeachment ^ | August 12, 2008 | By Jason Leopold and Alan Breslauer

Posted on 08/14/2008 5:22:30 AM PDT by Maelstorm

In November 2006, Pelosi explained the significance behind the record voter turnout that helped shift the balance of power in Washington for the first time in 12 years.

“People voted for change and they voted for Democrats who will take our country in a new direction,” Pelosi said during a victory speech in San Francisco on Nov. 8, 2006.

But Pelosi, who became House Speaker, never managed to exact the change she promised. She explained that she and her colleagues tried vigorously to pass legislation to end the war in Iraq.

"The public doesn’t want to know about process and 60 votes, they want outcomes, they want results," Pelosi said, explaining why Democrats could not end the war as promised prior to the midterm 2006 elections.

But Pelosi’s comments appeared disingenuous to many, since she was largely responsible for crafting an appropriations bill in backroom discussions with House Democratic leaders, passed in June, and then worked secretly with the White House budget director offering up concessions on Iraq war benchmarks if Bush would agree to the domestic spending attached to the final bill with little debate preceding a vote on the measure.

In fact, since the electoral victories in November 2006, the Democratic-controlled Congress has approved more than $300 billion in emergency spending bills for Iraq and Afghanistan without the benchmarks or withdrawal timetables that Pelosi and other leaders said they would demand.

“Madam Chaos” writes a book “Know Your Power”, and then publicly has to defend her own lack of power. As I said before, her book seems to be a self-help book to herself - the only one who needs to read it is her.

Pelosi thinks she is invulnerable in her district. The Cindy Sheehan challenge is shaping up to be a major headache for her.

Hugo Chavez has managed to keep the price of gasoline at $0.12 / gal. How come Nazi Pelosi can only get it to rise from ~$2 to ~$4?

Yes - the funny thing there to me is Cindy Sheehan would not be a major problem for anyone else to run against - except Pelosi. Pelosi’s “awesome” power won’t protect her from “Know Your Emotions” Cindy.

I even might pay a $12 admission fee to see that debate. :)

One of the reviewers of her book on said it all with this

'Should be indicted for murdering a helpless tree!,

The reviewer identified himself as a lifetime Democrat!! Amazon has not been able to keep up with the number of negative reviews of Pelosi's book.

In numerous cases Amazon is actually deleting the negative reviews. Last time I looked negative verses positive reviews are running 114 to 18 with the Negatives growing as we speak (if only will stop deleting them).

The new book by the'Yente in Chief' has sold less than 5,000 copies in 4 weeks time.

I am not a fan of former Speaker Gingrich but he sold more copies of his least popular book in one hour than Pelosi sold so far.

This would be funny if it was not a big joke on the entire country for allowing this loser to reach the Office of Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Mustafa Kemal, founder of the Turkish Republic, was born in Saloniki on the l9th May 1881 of humble background. His father started out as a customs officer, later becoming a timber merchant. Following his sudden death he left behind a family having to fend for itself.

As a child Mustafa finished primary school in Saloniki, going on to secondary education at Rucholigè School. Despite opposition from his uncle, who had taken on the responsibility of looking after the widow and her two children following the death of his brother, Mustafa entered military school, completing his military training in Istanbul. He succeeded in entering the Military School (Harbiye) where he completed his studies with flying colours, after which he was accepted into the School of the General Staff. In December 1905 he was commissioned as General Staff Captain Throughout his studies Mustafa Kemal consistently proved himself a conscientious, aspiring and diligent student who liked to interest himself with particularly difficult and complex problems. Whilst at military school in Saloniki, he distinguished himself in mathematics and literature. At the same time, and due mainly to his own efforts he started to learn French, in which he made considerable progress. Yet another trait of character which began to show through in his early youth was Mustafa's ability to show initiative and exceptionally his ability to give orders, whilst at the same Ottoman Empire was founded by Khan Osman.It was so little governmental.Then it was empire and IT took up sovereign on three continuent Until 1922. Their Empires have opened new ages(periods).They destroyed the undestroyable city walls.They conquered. the unconquerable countries.They've given justice and liberty to world.Countries Under the protection of Ottoman-Empire trusted. Ottoman-Empire.It was guarantee for its friends and it was nightmare for its enemy. ITS NAME is OTTOMAN EMPİRE All the world. was couple to destroy them.They attacked in every respect Than its ashes,A new Country was founded with leadership of ATATÜRK in 1923 Republic of Turkey We are grand child of Turkey Republic,We haven't forrgotten and don't forget Ottoman Empire. We will resist all atacking.We will continue being nightmare of our enemies.e OTTOMAN-EMPIRE is a Turkish Cyber Security & Attack Group.. Forever TURKEY! OTTOMAN-EMPIRE GROUPOTTOMAN-EMPIRE1299 yılında Osman Bey tarafından kuruldu. Küçük bir beylikken, bir imparatorluk oldu ve 1922 yılına kadar 3 kıtada egemenliğini Sürdürdü. İmparatorları çağlar açtı çağlar kapattı. Yıkılmaz denen surları yıktı, fethedilmez denen ülkeleri fethetti. Adalet ve özgürlük dağıttı. Kanunlarıyla hoş görüsüyle himayesindeki devletlerin güvencesi oldu. Dostları için bir güvence, düşmanları için korkulu bir rüya oldu. ONUN ADI OSMANLI İMPARATORLUĞUYDU. Tüm dünya ülkeleri birleşti, yıkmaya çalıştı. İçten ve dıştan. saldırdılar. Küllerinden Atatürk'ün önderliğinde 1923 yılında yeni bir devlet doğdu; TÜRKİYE CUMHURİYETİ. Bizler Türkiye Cumhuriyetinin evlatları, Osmanlı İmparatorluğunu unutmadık, unutturmayacağız. İçte ve dışta Ülkemize yapılacak her türlü saldırıya göğüs gerecek, Ülkemizin düşmanlarının korkulu rüyası olmaya devam edeceğiz. uNUTULAN OSMANLI'YI SONSUZA DEK YAŞATMAYA AND İÇTİK!. Ottoman-Empire, Türk Sanal Güvenlik ve Atak Grubu. OTTOMAN-EMPIRE GROUP time maintaining a sense of fraternity with his comrades. In the School of the General Staff he pondered long and hard over the hardship caused by the dictatorial rule of Abdullamid, who from within his famous Yildiz Palace spread fear throughout the whole country. Just like his comrades at the school, Mustafa harboured the same feelings of disgust and rebelliousness towards the political regime of the Sultan. For this reason he did not hesitate for one moment about taking part in the secret underground activities going on at the General Staff School, directed towards the overthrow of the Yildiz Regime. Between the years 1905 and 1918 Mustafa Kemal was deservedly awarded high ranking posts in the military chain of command. He became Chief of General Staff of the army that was sent out from Saloniki to put down the uprising of the l3th April 1909, a movement designed to return the country to Hamadic Absolutism and which had started with the non recognition of the Constitution that had been declared on the 23rd July 1908. Mustafa proved to have special qualities in the organisation and management of this army of oppression, known as the Army of the Movement. In 1910 he lead the Turkish Forces during military manoeuvres in the Province of Picardy in France. In 1911 he fought in Tripoli against the Italians, and in 1914 whilst serving as Military Attaché in Sofia, he successfully drew the governments attention to the catastrophic results connected with Turkey's entry into the war with Germany and its allies... OTTOMAN-EMPIRE is a Turkish Cyber Security & Attack Group.. Forever TURKEY! OTTOMAN-EMPIRE GROUP
